Markelle Fultz leads Huskies to 92-79 exhibition win in New Zealand - Aug 9, 2016

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Markelle Fultz (6'5''-SG-98) continued his impressive debut with the Huskies and carried the Washington men's basketball team to a 92-79 exhibition win in New Zealand over Mainland Eagles Academy. For the third straight game the freshman point guard led UW in scoring and tallied a game-high tying 23 points on 9-for-14 shooting. He also had eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in 30 minutes in front of a soldout crowd at Cowles Stadium in a contest that began at 2 p.m. Sunday in Christchurch, New Zealand. Fultz is averaging 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists during the exhibition tour that began last week with a pair of games in Australia. After dropping Wednesday's exhibition opener 100-96 in overtime, the Huskies ran away with an 84-59 win on Thursday. The team took a short flight to New Zealand on Friday and had a couple of days off. For the third straight game, coach Lorenzo Romar tinkered with the lineup. This time he started Fultz, David Crisp (6'0''-PG) and Matisse Thybulle (6'5''-F) in the backcourt alongside forwards Noah Dickerson (6'8''-F-97) and Matthew Atewe. Fultz, the only UW player who has started ever game, scored 10 points in the decisive fourth quarter when the Huskies turned a close contest into a rout. Washington led by four (63-59) with 9:36 left. That's when the Huskies put the Eagles away with an 18-2 run over the next four minutes. Fultz capped the spurt with a dunk that put UW ahead 82-61 with 5:26 remaining. Washington was up by 19 points (86-67) with 2:58 remaining before emptying its bench for the second straight game. Twelve of 13 Huskies scored, including Crisp and freshman guard Carlos Johnson who each had 13 points. Sophomore sharpshooter Dominic Green had 10 points, including two three-pointers off the bench. 'I thought Carlos played with tremendous energy,' Romar said in a statement released by UW. 'He went to the boards fearlessly and he really ran the floor well and was able to get himself some good decent buckets.' Washington redshirt freshman forward Sam Timmins (6'10''-C-97), a New Zealand native, finished with six points, eight rebounds and three assists in 21 minutes. 'Sam had his best game today and we were very excited for him to be able to play in front of his family and fans and hear the big cheers every time he went in,' Romar added. 'That's what we hoped would happen. That's one of the reasons we came here so Sam could come back home. For Sam to do what he did and come to UW without ever seeing the place, didn't even take a visit, that's something we'll never forget and this was kind of a reward for him to come back home.' Dickerson collected 12 rebounds in 16:31 minutes, including five offensive boards for the Huskies who won the rebounding battle 55-44. The Huskies struggled once again on the perimeter and connected on 8 of 26 three-pointers. Thybulle, a defensive standout who had four steals, was 0 for 4 from downtown and is 0 for 12 during the tour. Crisp appears to be establishing himself as a three-point threat. He drained 3 of 8 against the Eagles and is 8 for 23 on threes in exhibitions. Washington shot 44 percent from the field while holding Mainland to 34 percent. On Thursday, UW held the Frankston Blues to 32 percent shooting.
